Say Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic advertising executive and Lolita was a photographer's assistant and somehow they met in Bright Lights Big City. He's blinded by love; she by ambition. Purporting to be an autobiography, this book is honest, hilarious and heartrending, but above all a very real account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us. -- adapted from website information.
He's an alcoholic freelance art director. And he likes to hurt girls. Mentally, not physically (except for that once ...). She's a photographer's assistant. Hurt people hurt other people more skillfully-- and they've both been very hurt. How much will they do to each other-- and allow to have done to themselves?

A quick, but brutal read.

"They say the sea is actually black and that it merely reflects the blue sky above. So it was me. I allowed you to admire yourself in my eyes. I provided a service. I listened and listened and listened. You stored yourself in me."

"I liked hurting girls.
Mentally not physically, I never hit a girl in my life. Well once, But that was a mistake. I'll tell you about it later. The thing is, I got off on it. I really enjoyed it."
